Synthesis of disulfides
In an efficient, copper-catalyzed electrophilic persulfuration reaction leading to unsymmetrical disulfides and polysulfides, various nucleophiles, including aryl boronic acids, β-keto esters, and thiols, can be used as substrates. This method offers simple and practical conditions, and general scope.
